Hi new scholars!

Can't believe I haven't done one for ages, so here goes:

⚕️medical student who is really enjoying it at the moment

🚑 uni-wise, interested in pre-hospital/emergency medicine

🔬 casually interested in and social determinants of health and 🎮 narrative-based games

🎻 plays viola

"Are you sure I can sign this entry in the notes as a medical student? Don't want people to, like, rip it out and disregard this advice about antibiotics"

All my music is now Pay What You Want.

I have this theory that Monetizing My Hobby™️ has sucked all the joy out of it. It changed my mindset from "here's a thing I made, pay if you want" to "here's a thing I made, please pay me for it."

Boost appreciated.

online resources all start with clinical experinece but I have none??? I'm a student?? ?

updating CV to apply to electives next year and... no idea what to put in or how to organise it

best thing i've ever heard about labels: "as any cat will tell you, putting yourself in a box is completely different from someone else putting you in a box"

Is there a simple way to find out which shops and ATMs in a particular city, e.g., Dublin, accept UnionPay cards?

Okay, redoing this poll because of confusion on multiple aspects.

Which way does your Icon face?

Audience perspective, as in "How do we see it?" or "How does it show up on-screen?" and not as if you were the icon itself.

Please boost for hopefully improved and maximum demographic :)
